East LA’s Cafeteras fuses up the muses Friday—

Born in East L.A., Las Cafeteras fuses the unique sounds and Afro- Mexican rhythms, zapateado, and powerful lyrics of the Barrio.

The band will perform at 7:30 Fri­day, Feb. 19 at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.

The group merges roots music and modern day stories with what the Los Angeles Times has called a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip- hop, beat music, cumbia, and rock … Live, they’re magnetic.”

Their songs tell stories of a com­munity seeking love and fighting for justice in the concrete jungle of L.A. The band blends poetry with the re­gional folk music style of traditional Son Jarocho for a vibrant remix. Tickets $20 to $35.
